VPIphotonics is conducting in cooperation with PhoeniX Software a training on the computer-aided design of complex photonic components and integrated circuits. The workshop will address efficient techniques for circuit-level simulation and verification of heterogeneous PICs using VPIcomponentMaker Photonic Circuits and its toolkits, the creation of mask layouts using OptoDesigner, and how to seamlessly integrate and automatize both tasks.
Attendees will learn about the design process when creating complex photonic integrated circuits and optoelectronic applications. They will get acquainted with the software tools and learn about efficient modeling techniques. Various application cases will be discussed to illustrate the key design methodologies.
This hands-on 4-days training will take place on October 9-12, 2017 in Berlin, Germany.
The following topics will be covered during the training:
Modeling and design experts from VPIphotonics and PhoeniX Software will lead attendees through guided software demos, provide lectures on simulation methodologies and various application topics, and are available for questions and support during lab exercises.
The workshop is intended for up to 15 attendees. We will provide course material, computers and software licenses for the duration of the training.
For more information and registering please check out the VPI website.
If you wish to participate in any of these trainings, please contact us using the form which can be found here.
The PhoeniX Software team will help you with accommodation and travel recommendations.

Come join us at MIT this summer for a week of intensive short courses on integrated photonics: materials, devices, integrated photonic circuit design, chip fabrication and system applications.
The 2017 Summer Academy provides an introduction to integrated photonics and associated commercial applications in its manufacturing supply chain. Students ranging from beginners at the senior undergraduate level to faculty interested in starting an Integrated Photonics track at their schools will benefit. The content will specifically prepare professional engineers in the electronic and photonic hardware industries for use of the latest integrated photonic technology. Executives and technologists including planners, engineers, and scientists participating in the optical and electronic components technology supply chain will acquire a working knowledge of the field.
The AIM Photonics Summer Academy prepares attendees with the prerequisite skill set to take AIM’s online credentialing course offered in the fall of 2017 for design submissions to Multi-Project Wafer prototype runs at the AIM Photonics Institute’s fabrication facilities in Albany and Rochester, New York.
Location: Tsinghua University, Beijing, China
This hands-on training is the technical follow up to the SIMTAC event. In this training course hosted by Tsinghua University and supported by SIMTAC, you will get an overview of the latest status of the integrated photonics eco-system for the three major photonics technologies(SOI,InP,SiN).
See the program for more information.
We have a full house for this training. Please contact us (email@example.com) to get more information for our next trainings.
INPHOTEC, Pisa, Italy
The aim of the courses promoted by the Integrated Photonic Technologies Center INPHOTEC of the Communication, Information and Perception Institute (TeCIP) of the Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies, in collaboration with the National Inter-University Consortium for Telecommunications (CNIT), is to strengthen skills in the design, fabrication and packaging of photonic integrated circuits.
In this training course hosted by PhoeniX Software, you will get an overview of the latest status of the integrated photonics eco-system for the three major photonics technologies: InP, silicon photonics and TriPleX (SiN). This overview will include the available design tools today and the importance of considering test and packaging in an early stage. The unique combination of lectures and hands-on training exercises will teach you how to perform circuit simulations, including fabrication tolerances, how to use a design library (PDK) for mask layout and how to set-up your own libraries in a structured way. PhoeniX Software tools (ASPIC, OptoDesigner) will be used for this purpose.
Everybody who wants to engage with integrated photonics and wants to learn more about design tools and strategies. This training is part of our Support Services to our customers
